Simple comfort

"The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad." Psalms 97:1

"The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble."  Psalms 99:1

The Lord reigns.  But as look around me and watch the news it appears no one is in control!  Chaos rules, men live in fear of the coming events and yet, above it all there is a good God fully in charge of everything.  That should give us comfort that even when it seems everything is falling apart he is fully in charge and events are moving toward his wonderful destination.  

A verse I think of often talks of this.  It's hidden is the early Psalms when David wrote,

"The Lord sat as King at the flood, the Lord sits as King forever." Psalms 29:10

As you watch the chaos swirl around you remember, God reigns!  It's all under control and a loving good God is at the helm making sure this ship of humanity arrives at its appointed destination.
